    ... you are assuming they don't have a choice... the Mormons assume the exact opposite.

    it's wierd that all the hubub is from Jews being posthumously baptised-by-proxy.

    really people, it's not like the Mormons are saying " here we go, let's wash all that jeweyness off of you".... do just a little bit of reading on the subject, it's not a complicated rite/ritual

    Well thanks for the update, sorry I wasn't well versed on my proxy-baptism knowledge.

    Isn't that what baptism is saying, "Here, you had a different belief, we will cleanse you and now you will be saved (or whatever)"?

When they grabbed up my second amendment I sat still and bit my tongue because, truth be told, Iím allergic to guns. But here we are, you with your cold hard fingers wrapped around the neck of my first amendment and Iíve got to shout as loud as I can, because if I donít, before you know it, you wonít let me say nothing at all"

    Hmmm. Now they can come for us even when wer're dead. (Not referrering to the Mormons, just the infamous "they" that will eventually come for all us if no one stands up). I guess now we need to provide rights to the deceased.


    OMG! MORMONS! ROMNEY! Run for your lives!

    That's the point. She lived as she wished and fought hard for that, if that happened to me I would hope someone would stand up stand say "Stop trying to devalue her beliefs".

    So wait--"baptism" by another faith is an attempt to "devalue" Ann Frank's beliefs?

    Not buying it.

    That's weird, but not something to get angry about.

    kinda sorta... but it doesn't involve forced conversion.
